A farm to learn

On Thursday 15th May my class visited (without me – as I was ill) Ingenhammshof. Here not only children and young people but adults too can get to know about the way of life on a farm, and they learn first hand about the environment through close contact with lots of animals.

It was a pity I couldn’t go with, but my friends reported about:

First they learned theoretically many things about farm life:

 

  • Which work is to be done? (to grow grain, feeding stuff , fruits and vegetables, to farm animals)
  • Why do farmers have animals? (In order to make money and not as they are cute)
  • What animals are used for? (Milk, wool, meat, leather and much more)

 

But as well they had to do some practical work afterwards:

The cows were fed.

The geese, donkeys and the horses were led out to pasture.

Afterwards children fed the chickens and goats.

Food for pigs was prepared before the pigs were fed. The pigs smacked thrilled. That was very exciting.

After a lunch break we went to the stables.

Children mucked firstly out the stables and afterwards they spread clean straw.

At noon the class drove happily but also tired back to school.

There everybody snuffled and noticed that every child smelled like a farmer coming from the stables :-)

But see yourself:
